Is this the retail model you're talking about? I've seen a few in the pro shops and the grooves didn't look too deep, but they did look a little wider and sharper compared to other retail Vokey's.
Would anyone know if they are U or V or box grooves on the spin milled?

The feel and spin is amazing.
The only problem is that their like a cheesegrator to golf balls!

and I gotta say, when I hit the Spin Milled, the ball had some very high spin on it, and I was pretty impressed with the club.

Awesome wedge. Just need to learn to control it a bit better.

I have the 58* with 8* bounce. It only has a slight trailing edge grind (factory, not aftermarket)
I initially found that I was catching the ground with the heel a lot. I therefore considered grinding the heel to resolve this - however....
I also thought the lie was a touch upright for me. So, I got it bent 1* flatter - and low and behold the heel stopped digging!!
It now slides under the ball when I open the face, and doesnt dig.
The leading edge is sharp enough to cut through the turf on fuller shots, and the 8* of bounce seems to kick it back up through the grass quick enough not to slow the head down too much.
I always thought I needed some fancy grind on my lob wedge, but it appears the Bob Vokey's sole design on this particular wedge are just right!!! (for ME)
I dont tend to hit it more than 60 yards - never really been a full swing guy on the lob wedge - I prefer to use my 52* for that.
However, over the next couple of weeks I will be practising hard with this club (and the 48 and 52) see if I can get some degree of confidence over my full, half and quarter swing distances. Can only help my game
So, I gave the wedge 5 stars as it works perfectly for me.
PS I use ProV1's and see a little bit of scuffing on these soft balls - however, I am more than happy to sacrifice a couple of golf balls for the amount of control the bigger grooves give me

i'm down with it for the full swing 100-120 yard but have to watch the pull back sometimes when you really pinch these. i can't imagine getting a sm60 seems unnecesary. even a 56 or 58 does, well to me at least.

I'm not fickle when it comes to wedges. I've been playing my 900 gunmetals since '01, right when they were first released. But I have to admit that it looks like they're being retired in favor of the Spin Milled's. I'll revisit this review when the honeymoon is over, but for right now, I'm in love.
I've played my SM58.08 for about 10 rounds now and have noticed a distinct mellowing in the spin now that the grooves aren't brand new. Still spins great though even when gouging balls out of rough. Still love it though. Probably will stay in my bag for years.
One Year Follow-Up Review:
I've had the SM58.08 in the bag for just over a year now and can tell you that the grooves don't produce nearly the same spin as they did in the beginning. This would be disappointing if not for the fact that, otherwise, the wedge just feels so good and comfortable. Its a super consistent wedge, I use it for most green side chips and bunker shots. It doesn't spin quite as much as it did when the grooves were brand new but still probably better than most other wedges out there. Its probably going to live in the gamer bag for a long time to come.
